This audiobook focuses first on the strategic issues concerning your organization with regard to its development and what tactics are most productive regarding your office space (including home offices as well). The author points out that most organizations just ´´get an office´´ without thinking through their requirements for the people who will populate that office. Much management and employee effectiveness is lost in this way; it is also a huge waste of money and resources. People are the largest expense in most modern businesses that do not have factories and warehouses. Offices are the second largest expense, and their entire purpose is to make people more effective and productive. So, the author emphasizes thinking first about what needs to be done, what type of offices would be most effective for your people, and only then focusing on the office issue itself. The author suggests that a hybrid organization may work best with a core headquarters and satellite home offices to help individual contributors to be most productive while enabling headquarters to avoid losing energy and productivity though supervising employees on site. Then the author suggests numerous tips and ideas to make your office, and home-office workers spaces, most productive - something few other authors focus on. Simply´s Manage Your Home Office audiobook is strongly suggested as a second work to help make your offices more productive. A third suggestion is Business Start-up, which discusses offices with regard to expense, cashflow, and productivity for the emerging enterprise. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deaver Brown.

Eve was a handful. She had a temper that could spook a cavalry horse, and she had never been tamed. Until her father´s marriage brought a new stepmother and her son into the house. Theo wouldn´t be around for long. Officers in Her Majesties Navy rarely were. They came and went with the trade winds. One month. That´s all they have. A man of discipline and order, Theo knows how to battle insubordination on board a sailing vessel. But Eve? Her defiance brings her to the brink of mutiny, and he finds himself on the ledge between brute and gentleman. Her ferocity calls to inner beast, but to hell with her unholy fits. Eve also balances on a ledge - somewhere between childhood tantrums and womanhood. A father who treats her like a sheltered child, and a new man in her life who pushes her to be a special brand of lady. The kid gloves and sewing clubs of genteel society have never appealed to her rebellious streak, but what Theo desires in a lady? That she is irresistibly drawn to. Is it the heavy hand or the gentle touch which draws in an officer´s lady? Who will tame whom in this Victorian-era battle of the wills? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Desiree Dunne.

The Mediterranean island of Malta, still a British colony, is a strategic lynchpin under siege--literally the most bombed patch of earth on the planet. Max Chadwick is an officer with the British Ministry of Information and is thus charged with keeping morale high against all odds. If the Maltese bow under the weight of the daily assaults, the tide of the war could turn. Max spends his time with the military´s top brass and the beautiful deputy editor of Il Berqa, the Maltese paper. And despite his better judgment, he has fallen for the wife of an influential and well regarded naval officer.When the body of a beautiful young Maltese woman arrives at the morgue, the medical officer suspects she is the victim of something--or someone--more sinister than an air strike. It seems a serial killer is on the island using the war as a cloak for his crimes. The officer instinctually calls Max when he pries a shoulder tab with the British Naval insignia from the dead girl´s hand.Forced to keep his investigation from both the military and the press, Max sets out to unravel the mystery and unmask the killer. He realizes he is in over his head when the Lieutenant Governor´s Office intervenes and insists Max end his investigation. Max can´t help but wonder if they are random attacks or whether the killer has sophisticated political motives. What he discovers is far more disturbing than he ever could have anticipated and sets in motion a dangerous course of events that challenges Max´s loyalties and endangers his closest friends. 1.

They lied to protect their country. He told the truth to save it. A gripping historical thriller from the bestselling author of Fatherland. January 1895. On a freezing morning in the heart of Paris, an army officer, Georges Picquart, witnesses a convicted spy, Captain Alfred Dreyfus, being publicly humiliated in front of twenty thousand spectators baying ‘Death to the Jew!’ The officer is rewarded with promotion: Picquart is made the French army’s youngest colonel and put in command of ‘the Statistical Section’ - the shadowy intelligence unit that tracked down Dreyfus. The spy, meanwhile, is given a punishment of medieval cruelty: Dreyfus is shipped off to a lifetime of solitary confinement on Devil’s Island - unable to speak to anyone, not even his guards, his case seems closed forever. But gradually Picquart comes to believe there is something rotten at the heart of the Statistical Section. When he discovers another German spy operating on French soil, his superiors are oddly reluctant to pursue it. Despite official warnings, Picquart persists, and soon the officer and the spy are in the same predicament... Narrated by Picquart, An Officer and a Spy is a compelling recreation of a scandal that became the most famous miscarriage of justice in history. Compelling, too, are the echoes for our modern world: an intelligence agency gone rogue, justice corrupted in the name of national security, a newspaper witch hunt of a persecuted minority, and the age-old instinct of those in power to cover-up their crimes. 1.
